US Soccer Player Development Initiatives

US Soccer PDI 2015


The US Soccer Board of Directors approved Youth Development Initiatives developed and proposed by the national coaching staff at its meeting on July 5 

These two initiatives mandate small-sided games and a move to calendar-year age groups.

Attached is a copy of the final version that was approved on July 5th.

Please note the implementation schedule:
  Adopted as a Best Practice – August 2016 for 2016/2017 Soccer Year

This approach will provide sufficient time for implementation. The approved timetable allows the 2015/2016 soccer year for communication, explanation, and planning and then initial implementation on September 1, 2016 for the 2016/2017 soccer year.
